Plant Some Shade Program

Program Overview

The City of Storm Lake is pleased to announce that it is once again partnering with Mid-American Energy and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources in 2011 to provide 100 trees to Iowa residents who are customers of Mid-American Energy including Storm Lake residents.

This partnership will allow residents to purchase 6-8 feet tall shade trees and 2-3 feet tall conifers at reduced rates of $30 per tree. Each resident is limited to two (2) trees and must be a resident of Iowa and a customer of Mid-American Energy.

The trees being offered through the program this year are as follows:

All trees must be pre-ordered through the City of Storm Lake and must be picked up during the pick up event day on Saturday, May 21, 2011 from 9:00AM to 11:00AM at AWAYSIS Park (next to King's Pointe Resort).
